About The Film
At a time when African American men are often depicted poorly throughout mainstream media Tyler New Media breaks that trend with Men Ain’t Boys. The film offers a thought provoking look at issues such as stereotypes surrounding manhood, the results of effective fatherhood and the requirements for maintaining lasting love, relationships and marriages. Men Ain’t Boys provides a blueprint for men, women and children to learn how real men live and how real men love.
Making The Movie:
The bulk of filming for Men Ain’t Boys took place during Winter of 2010. The Tyler New Media film crew traveled to four major cities (Atlanta, DC, Chicago, Houston) and interviewed over 45 men. The purpose of the interviews were to determine how manhood can be defined in current times. Particpants ranged in age from 22 to 77 and came from a number of diverse backgrounds and experiences. The dynamic range of men included in the film will speak to audiences around the globe!
